Junkön is a large, permanently inhabited island. Several professional fishermen are based here. During the summer, they fish Baltic herring, whitefish and sea trout. In the autumn, they net an endemic species of vendace for its roe- löjrom, the "gold of the sea". Junkön is characterized by sand and forest. One half of the island is more or less covered with trees, while the other is essentially one large beach. Unfortunately, the sandy half is off-limits, since it is used by the air force for target training. Junkön´s forests have pines that are more than 200 years old. Attractions include a windmill of unknown age and an old archipelago homestead. Guided tours are arranged by Junkön's Skärgårdsturism. Here lies also an old boat motor museum and also the Archipelago Museum.
